New Vancouver Police video: Information for public on surviving an active deadly threat

E-Comm participated in a new video by the Vancouver Police Department. It has important information for the public facing an “active deadly threat” situation. An active deadly threat is when an individual is actively killing or attempting to kill people, generally in a confined and/or populated area, and, in most cases, with a firearm.

These incidents are rare in Canada, but like any serious crime, your survival could depend on being prepared.

Key information:  Run or escape

  • If there is a safe way out, stop what you are doing and run!
  • Leave your belongings behind
  • Help others to escape, but don’t let indecision slow you down
  • Call 9-1-1 when you are safe
  • Prevent others from entering the area
